Since I was a child, comic-books and movies were my passion. Indeed, I think I’m keen on any kind of artistic expression.
I deeply admire the great American comic-book artists, such as John Buscema, John Byrne, Adam Hughes, Mike Mignola, Rick Leonardi, Adam Hughes, Jae Lee or Tim Sale.
But, I grow up with Tintin, Asterix, Lucky Luke, Spirou or the Smurfs. And, especially, with Spanish comic (known here as “tebeos”) artist, who taugh me the basis of scriptting, sketching or inking. I also have special fondness for Francisco Ibáñez and Jan, who created my most beloved characters: Mortadelo y Filemón, y Superlópez.
In literature, I opted for the French classics, such as Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo. The Three Musketeers books are, probably, the greatest adventure ever written. Among contemporary writers, I like George R. R. Martin, Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child, Susanne Clarke, and especially Orson Scott Card, for his clean style and the depth of his stories.
As everyone, I also like movies. I was took to the cinema by my father to see Star Wars in big screen when I was three, and it caused a thorough impression on me. That film marked my life in many ways, and since then I’m a big fan of the saga, and of sci-fi in general. I think that 80’s movies were great!
Hence, the soundtracks have always fascinated me. Authors such as John Williams, Ennio Morricone, Jerry Goldsmith, Bruce Broughton and Patrick Doyle are my musical idols. Apart from them, I love the music of the French composer Jean-Michel Jarre.
I hope you enjoy my work!
